-based technique that is the fbi has been using for many decades to successfully get hardened serial killers, for example, to confess to very heinous crimes. it works with detain knees as well. in fact, what i did when i went down there and the first interrogation plan they showed me was filled with just horrendous behavior escalating all the way to torture and sending people to third countries to be tortured. so that kind of stuff was ineffective. that's why they asked us to come down to help them improve their plans. and then to show them how report base works, i took the worst detainee. a guy who was doing nothing but reciting the koran from memory when interrogating him, i took him and used repoire-base techniques to connect him to a human building no matter who you are. in 11 days i got him to go from complete silence to jim, my friend, what can i do for you? he was working for us at that point. >> i think part of what we are doing here is going exactly where we don't want to go as a country, which is having a conversation about whether torture works or not. i don't think anyone credibl
heroes at the time, the other cia agents, fbi agents, military officials who said, not only is torture ineffective, it's illegal, immoral and it will do harm to our national security if we use it. that's a story entirely untold. >> absolutely right. we know those techniques played a role in the war on terror, for better or worse. did the filmmakers have an obligation to at least acknowledge that role? not making a moral judgment as to the validity of the approach, but the accuracy of the fact that torture techniques were deployed? >> in one sense it's true, entertainment is entertainment and fact is fact, this is a film that starts out by claiming it is based on fact. and once that claim is made, i do think that the filmmakers who now have a real platform given this controversy should acknowledge that in fact torture did not lead to bin laden as the facts have shown. and also, i think acknowledged that there were real heroes at the time who faced with the same kinds of pressures the filmmakers depicted said no. >> another interesting feature of the film is that women are at the center,
. moving in now, analyst and fbi profiler clint van zandt. let's start with the note found in his home. no hint of a motive and he did write in part "i still have to get ready to see how much of the neighborhood i can burn down and do what i like doing best -- killing people." what can we glean from that note? >> we know a number of things, for example, over 30 years ago, he used a hammer and beat his grandmother to death with a hammer. served about 17 years in prison and came out and lived in a house with his mother and older sister. he and his sister didn't get along. he loved his mother and had nothing to do with his older sister. his mother died and there was a conflict as to who is going to get the house. his sister's body was found and she is dead. this may well be a significant mental health issue. one that went into killing his sister because he didn't want her to get the house and then acting out in this way and maybe, just maybe because of the other terrible shootings we have seen this month. this is how he modelled his behavior. this is the way he wanted to go. >> we know he
guns there's more homicide. >> that's simply not true. our fbi data and our national government data show that the higher murder rates, the higher violent crime rates are in areas where gun ownership is discouraged and carrying is either illegal or discouraged. i don't know what they were looking at at harvard, but that is absolutely not what the data show. >> if you also look at the top ten states across the country and per capita gun ownership. five of those top ten states also have the highest gun deaths per capita. how do you explain that? >> they still have a low violent crime rate and a lower murder rate. so you're talking numbers versus rates, and i think that's probably where the disparity is coming in. >> last question for you here, larry. when we look at the problem ahead of us, several gun shows canceled in the wake of the newtown shooting, doesn't that go against the message that the nr ascent yesterday canceling the gun shows that canceling gun shows at least according to mr. lapierre's statements, need to be at schools and need to defend themselves. >> each gun show is
. the new york times had a front page story about the swiss cheese nature of the f.b.i.'s recordkeeping pertaining to those who have mental illness. >> listen, michael. the nra -- this is what wayne lapierre said. he talked about mental illness. they are opposed to background checks on people who go to gun shows, who sell guns from one to another privately. it doesn't matter. >> i wish we had more time. thank you, david corn. thank you steven siebold. >>> up next, the most challenged quotes of the year. and if you want to follow me on twitter, you jest need to know how to spell smerconish. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> back to "hardball." the washington post assigns a certain number of pinochios to politicians that might be factually challenged. we were part of the big ones saying that jeep was shipping american jobs over to china and the one from an obama super pact that seemed to blame bain capitol and mitt romney. let's look at the ones that might have slipped your minds. >> half the people are euthanized every year, half of those people are euthanized involuntarily
. and the agents on the scene are depicted as okay with that. in real life, when that happened a fbi agent who was on the scene had a fit, began yelling at the agents, threatened to have them arrested and said this isn't the way we do this or the way americans do this. so really dramatic confrontations about the moral issues that were going on there. >> is there anything that the senators in writing this, have they asked for anything in return? >> they have. they have asked that sony make it clear that it's fiction but what the senators really could do and the reason the movie is so powerful is so much is still classified so all we have is the movie. we have the movie giving us sort of a window on something we haven't seen and they could get more declassified. >> amy davidson, thanks so much. great to see you. >>> it's looking like christmas here at 30 rock. more about that after break. ] you know exactly what it takes to make them feel better. ♪ you make me happy [ female announcer ] that's why you choose children's tylenol. the same brand your mom trusted for you when you were young. ♪ h
by the fbi. director's feud over "django unchained" and a chance for 100 lucky people to star in the super bowl halftime show alongside beyonce'. details on those stories throughout the hour. >>> but up first, right now senate leaders scrambling to find common ground to avoid going over that fiscal cliff. got less than three days to go now, folks. at the same time in his weekly address today, the president says he's preparing a plan of action if no deal is reached. >> if an agreement isn't reached on time, then i'll urge the senate to hold an up or down vote on a basic package that protects the middle class from an income tax hike, extends vital unemployment insurance for americans looking for a job, and lays the ground work for future progress on more economic growth and deficit reduction. >> republicans say they want a deal as well, but they highlighted their biggest sticking points today in their weekly address. listen now to missouri senator roy blount. >> senate democrats have spent months drawing partisan lines in the sand. the president's proposal to raise tax on the top 2% of ameri
wayne lapierre, you're wrong. >> you've got 35 states that don't cooperate with the fbi on background checks. you've got states now that permit gun, conceal guns in elementary schools, you've got such a patchwork quilt of states permitting guns and access to guns in places where common sense says they shouldn't be but certainly on these magazines. >> why not a bill that says how about federal grants for armed security in schools, address mental health, i mean, it's a conversation about culture as well as some of these gun restrictions because it sounds likes that's not where the administration is headed. >> i don't know how they get it through the house. in 1994 in a democratic-controlled house 216-214 is how the assault weapon ban was in the house, that was democratic controlled house, 258 democrats were in that house of representatives. you you're not going to see anything. maybe the magazine clip. i do think the magazine clip could you see some sort of movement there but this goes back to why the president has to get a deal before thend end ofe year. if the entire year is lost goi
the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird holiday traditions. jimmy fallon had #latenig #latenighthashtags. he asked viewers to send in weird holiday traditions. after june wrapping a present, we ball up the paper and throw it at the ceiling fan and cheer

that in perspective, the fbi's annual budget is $8 billion. now, i don't know where you get that money. do you raise local property taxes? do you fire 70,000 teachers? do you ask congress to kick in that money? then we're adding to the deficit. >> all right, guys. speaking of deficit, we'll turn to the fiscal cliff in just a moment. stand by. i want to bring in nbc's kristen welker with the president in honolulu. hello to you in paradise. president obama, is he as focused on the fiscal cliff today as everyone back here and on my remote live shots are? >> reporter: well, here's the answer, alex. today partisan bickering is going to be put aside, at least temporarily, with president obama and a number of members of congress and the first lady attending a memorial service that will be held for the late senator daniel inoue. that is set to get under way in about two hours. but behind the scenes i am told by white house officials that this is still very much a working vacation for president obama. i'm also told that conversations continue to go on at the staff level between staffers at the white house an
